Our Church

All are welcome here. St. Paul's embodies this idea, and we celebrate the diversity and inclusiveness of our parish each week as we gather together for the singular purpose of worshiping and glorifying God.

Come and see." Jesus says this to his disciples in the Gospel of John, and at St. Paul's, we want you to come and see a church consistently called one of the most welcoming that newcomers have ever attended. We want you to come and see a community that provides close, loving support for all who worship with us. Come and see.
